Eagles Take it Easy Lyrics

Last updated: 05/16/2011 11:00:00 AM

Well, I'm running down the road
tryin' to loosen my load
I've got seven women on my mind,
Four that wanna own me,
Two that wanna stone me,
One says she's a friend of mine,
Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels
Drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don't even try to understand
Just find a place to take your stand
and take it easy

Well, I'm a standing on a corner
in Winslow Arizona
It's such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin' down to take a look at me
Come on, baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
gonna save me
We may lose and we may win though
we will never be here again
so open up, I'm climbin' in,
so take it easy..."Alright"

Well I'm running down the road trying to loosen
my load, got a world of trouble on my mind
lookin' for a lover who won't blow my
cover, she's so hard to find
Take it easy, take it easy
don't let the sound of your own wheels make you crazy,
come on baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me, ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh

Oh we got it easy
We oughta take it easy, yeah

Not a cover | Reviewer: Jim | 7/23/10

The song was written by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey (a friend of Browne's and a member of The Eagles) and released by The Eagles in 1972. Browne recorded and released the song *after* The Eagles (1973). Since this was the first version recorded and released, it is not a cover.

It wasn't Winslow, AZ that this took place - The real story: the band's van broke down in east Flagstaff, the corner was a 3-way on Rt.66 (across from the tracks), the flatbed was really a Datsun pickup truck but the lyrics needed to better tell the story. Ck it out when you go to FLG and recognize an old DW building (it's something different now). It'll amaze you.

bittersweet | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/13/07

although, he'll never read this, and I will never tell... The eagles have captivated a cold hearted man with this song... and even if he's still bad, he thinks of me when he sings it..
the eagles are a phenomenoen of a band. they will forever be played and sore hearts will always bleed. people's spirits will always be revived....and.. Somehow I'm trying to find peace in this song...
